Freefoam, a leading manufacturer of a wide range of innovative products for the building industry in UK, Ireland and Mainland Europe, announce the addition of even more products to its already extensive colour range of fascia and soffit. All colours are now available in an 18mm thick Square Leg Fascia in 150mm and 250mm wide boards and also a 10mm thick General Purpose Soffit Board in 175mm and 225mm wide boards. With the increasing popularity of Grey window frames and guttering Freefoam has also introduced the 250 and 350mm General Purpose Board in three shades of grey, Storm Grey, Dark Grey and Anthracite Grey.
In the last few years the UK has started to see a significant shift in commercial specifications from white roofline to colour. In Continental Europe most windows are coloured and in Ireland it’s about fifty percent. Whilst in the UK colour has doubled in the last fifteen years to 20% this trend is only predicted to increase.
Freefoam is the colour specialist. Recognising the growing importance of colour for architects, specifiers, and house developers Freefoam seized the opportunity 15 years ago and generated its patented ColormaxTM technology using an advanced master-batching process with a blend of natural PVC and pigments to simultaneously co-extrude PVC building products. Freefoam offer a wide range of ten colours with built in colourfastness, colour variety, and reliable colour matching all with a ten year guarantee.
All new products are available straight from stock with no lead time, and are available with matching trims and fixing accessories. Coupled with a marketing leading ten year guarantee the Freefoam colour range is an attractive proposition and a natural alternative to white for all house builders and specifiers.
Colin St John, UK General Manager, summarised “Our view is that colour is here to stay. As specialist colour roofline manufactures we have the expertise and capability to structure our production process to meet the changing demands of todays housebuilder and specifier. The introduction of an even wider range of colour fascia and soffit products underlines our long term commitment to providing customers with a marketing leading range to support this growing market.”
